Topic - Breaking Slings And Wire How To Avoid.

Blackbirdnest - on 06 Jan 2013
Just read following from: http://dmmclimbing.com/knowledge/how-to-break-nylon-dyneema-slings/ . The para of interest is : "Clearly, taking advantage of the shock-absorbing capability of the rope by using it to tie directly into anchors as opposed to using a sling, will reduce the chances of dramatically shock-loading the anchors. If you do use slings then ensuring there is no slack in the system is paramount".

Having newly returned to climbing after a break of 20 years I am getting my climbing rack together. I am thinking I should now put carabiners on every Nut and Cam and attach directly to rope, and largely ignore the Quickdraws.

Any major faults with my thinking ??
